When Foursquare started, it was really only available for B2C Businesses with a retail or hospitality face, like clothing stores, hotels, cafes, bars and restaurants. However, as demand has grown for businesses without a customer-facing premises or B2B, so has Foursquare evolved.
Last June, as Foursquare-mania was taking off, I wrote about 10 amazing Foursquare website applications, to help you get more out of Foursquare. Since a lot can happen online in 8 months, I thought it was time to check back in, and see what NEW websites are available and improving Foursquare.
It’s been a busy time for Foursquare since they launched in March 2009. As a geo-location social networking site and mobile phone app, Foursquare has proven itself as an amazing marketing tool for many businesses. And 2011 looks set to be a bright year, especially since the World Economic Forum announced the company as a technology pioneer for 2011. Now Foursquare has launched it’s “Foursquare for Business” page, to encourage businesses to engage their customers with better planning and promotions.
It has only been a short time since Foursquare was introduced to the social media world, but already businesses everywhere are overwhelmed with how little time and money it takes to embrace Foursquare’s geo-location network, and see great results.
